This bundle is available for the Ocean Blue and Lavender Purple Galaxy Note 9 models and includes the 128GB/6GB device bundled with Samsung's latest IconX earbuds and a fast Qi wireless charging stand.

Coming back to comparisons, Ookla found that the Galaxy Note 9 showed an average LTE download speed of 43.2Mbps, higher than the iPhone XS's 38.9Mbps in the United States.

While $929 may still seem like a lot, the Galaxy Note 9 is offering a truly best-in-class experience. Unlike other speed tests, the Phone Buff style is conducted using a specialized machine to ensure there's no margin of error.

The tests were conducted on 20MHz channel of Band 4 which is used by major carriers in the United States as well as Canada. While Apple has since been relying on Intel modems for the iPhone devices - the iPhone XS and XS Max comes equipped with the Intel XMM 7560 LTE modem - the Android flagships such as the Note 9 or Pixel 2 comes with Qualcomm LTE modems that has a history of being faster than its Intel counterparts. For real-world results, we used the week of September 24, 2018 from Ookla's massive crowdsourced Speedtest Intelligence database. They found that download speeds on the new iPhones have increased by 6.6Mbps on average on all USA carriers.

Indian Rupee breaches 73 mark, plunges to fresh all-time low
On Thursday, the USA dollar touched 1.3828 against the Singapore dollar, its highest since Jul 11 a year ago . The Indian rupee on Thursday slumped further to an all-time low of 73.77 against the USA dollar.


There is not a remarkable difference between the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max but if one was to nitpick, the larger iPhone does offer slightly better LTE connectivity, the test suggest. However, the data revealed that users upgrading from an iPhone 7 will see even more significant improvements, with a 9.9 Mbps increase in the USA, and a staggering 31.6 Mbps jump in Canada.

When the signals are strong, iPhone XS Max LTE speed is nearly on par with the Pixel 2 and Galaxy Note 9.

In South Korea, Samsung also launched a special programme in which the company purchases used Galaxy products from buyers of the Galaxy Note 9. Apple has improved performance and stability, even on older devices, with the iOS 12. I think the secret is in this chart: Software matters.
